Triathalon Fundraiser

We will once again help run the Cascade Edge Triathalon at Nolte State Park on June 19th. We need help running the day of race items before and during the event and then cleaning up after the event. We need 30 or more volunteers for "day of" items and 10 or more for clean-up. Please write to volunteer. We really need your help.

Car Wash

There will be a car wash in support of sending the team to the UW team camp on June 5th at the Maple Valey Chevron (27201 216th Avenue Southeast, corner of Kent-Kangley Road and 216th Ave SE, across from the Pla-Mor Tavern). Please come out and support Kentlake Volleyball.

Free Sports Physicals

All incoming freshmen and most incoming juniors are required to obtain a sports physical after June 1st. A sports physical is good for two years and a middle school physical is not good for high school.

The Kent School District will have free sports physicals for anyone interested. You can attend either session:
  • Saturday, June 5th - 8:00am to Noon at Kent-Meridian HS
  • Saturday, August 14th - 8:00am to Noon at Kentlake HS

Summer Calendar

The summer calendar can be downloaded from the website. Some of the highlights:
  • Selected players have been invited to attend the University of Washington Team Camp at the end of July. This is an excellent experience.
  • Two teams will participate in Summer League at Kentwood. Coach Behrens will be selecting the teams based on June practices.
  • Two teams (not necessarily the same two as above) will be playing at the Central Washington University tournament on June 21st and 22nd. This is the Monday and Tuesday following the end of school the previous Friday. Players will stay in the CWU dorms.

Summer Camp

The Falcon Elementary Camp and the Falcon Middle School Camp will be held June 28th to 30th at Kentlake. Players will be divided by skill level to offer the most appropriate level of training for every athlete.

Each camp is $60 for the three days. You can download the camp brochure from the website.

Informational Meeting

Current Kentlake students that are interested in spring and summer activities should attend the meeting on Friday after school. Current 8th graders are busy with middle school volleyball and should participate with those activities instead. Look to this blog for more information about summer activities.

8th Graders

Current 8th graders (incoming freshmen) can attend summer practices after the last middle school volleyball matches. There are matches on Tuesday, June 1st, so they can start Wednesday, June 2nd.

Practice that week is from 2:30 to 4:30 and the middle schools don't get out until after 3pm, so we fully understand that you will be late. This is unavoidable and no 8th graders should leave school early to attend practice.

New Season Approaches

A new season of Kentlake Volleyball approaches. We will be updating the blog and the website with information about spring and summer activities. Later in the summer we will have information about tryouts (which start August 23rd this year, by the way).
